Below, the first video is of President Barack Obama’s 2012 Election victory speech, where he speaks reading off a teleprompter. The one on the right shows him during an interview. He is well known for his speaking skills in any situation and in both videos he is eloquent and thoughtful. But note how often he pauses and uses filler/pause words during the interview.
